Ho Hum... Another Top Ten List For Saratoga Springs

By staff Report | Local News
SARATOGA SPRINGS – The website livability.com has named Saratoga Springs as “Top 10 Winter City” in an updated post on Thursday, January 30. The post read: “…winter brings a chance to relax, release and rejuvenate. Long celebrated for its abundant mineral springs, Saratoga Springs has become a hotspot for those seeking the springs’ “healing” powers. “Speaking of healing, Saratoga Springs saw 13 percent job growth in the amusement and recreation industry between 2005 and 2010, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s helped keep the city’s economy stable during the recession. CNN Money magazine listed Saratoga Springs as one of the top 100 Best Places to Live, citing the city’s low crime rate, walk able downtown, solid school system and cultural amenities. “Both tourists and residents flock to downtown Saratoga Springs in winter to indulge in the royal treatment at one of more than two-dozen spas and salons. The town is known for its eclectic boutiques and specialty shops, as well as its flavorful local cuisine. The annual Chowderfest pits local restaurants against each other to claim the title of Saratoga’s Best Chowder. “This is an outdoor lover’s paradise throughout the year, but winter seems to bring out the best in this naturally scenic city. Residents enjoy cross-country skiing at Saratoga Spa State Park, snowboarding down the Adirondacks or snowmobiling across one of the region’s many trails.”
